Belgian newspapers confirm their Google victory
This morning, we hear the (not altogether surprising) news that it is illegal for Google to reproduce information from Belgian newspapers on the news.google.be site.
Google had appealed the previous decision, but the ruling hasn’t been fundamentally changed.
Here’s my previous post for background, and I’ll update this post later with come pithy commentary, although most of what there is to say on this story as already been said!
Update: Google have now responded on their blog. They intend to appeal. Again.
